Children from Nobel International School Algarve gathered this week to stack and send off more than 80 shoe box donations for the Overseas Supermercados.
The boxes contained small gifts such as toys, stationery and games for disadvantaged children in the local area and will be distributed by Overseas Supermercados in the lead up to Christmas.
One of the pupils who donated a shoebox, James, aged 7, visited the Portimão Overseas Supermercados branch yesterday and was delighted to find his own box amongst a growing tower of boxes. He said, “We all really wanted to find toys and give things that children our age would like. It is very exciting opening presents on Christmas Day and it´s nice to know that even children who don´t have much will get something nice to open and play with.”
